winter it has been, a visual one at that, a virtual view of what the great lakes look right now, ice covered by 88.4%. that's the number that we have not seen for some 20 years, 1994, you see right there, was 90.7. the all-time record happened in 1979, they were 95%. so, we're nearing that record. and, yes, we do have a brief warmup next week. before that happens, that snow, that linzie was talking about, is coming through, it hit indianapolis, cincinnati and then, you see new york in there, a little bit of snow, but the real majority of it is going to happen in eastern massachusetts, up towards parts of new england, we're talking up to a foot in places and really the wind is going to be the big issue, that's why a blizzard watch has been issued for parts of the cape. i want to remind you, next week, at least we get a couple of days of relief. >> holding you to that, ginger. thank you so much. with so many people asking, is climate change playing a role in this extreme weather?
